Greetings onēsan's & aniki's,

And welcome, to this collector's first custom Nendoroid Doll article!

Grab your strawberry kitkats and bubba drinks, cause Static Breed has some juicy stories to share from the lands he comes from.

But first.. I need to give you all a heads up, I am not looking for any compassion or pity but due to an accident 3-years ago I am limited to how much I can use a keyboard or phone everyday for now. With that being said, if I do receive any comments or private messages, please forgive me if I take a while to reply (I did 80% of this using my voice), I value everybody's messages and appreciate any positive or negative feedback about this custom.


Hajimemashouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!


For those who know me very well, you would know me as Static Breed 'the Breath of Fire boy'. I am, as you have guessed.. a huge fan of Breath of Fire from Capcom. I probably own every piece of merch apart from the garage kits that I have endlessly been searching for. And let me just say this now, if you were to dive in the incredible adventure of breath and fire, full of Dragons and Drama, I recommend you do it in this order starting with BoF 3 / BoF 5 / BoF 4 / BoF 1 / BoF 2. There are 10 reasons behind that order, but lets save that for another article shall we?

Although Nina BoF 6 figure from kotobukiya is pwetty noce....


I decided a few months to go to create my own Nina Nendoroid Doll, using her adult version design from Breath of fire 3.

It took me more time to gather everything I needed than it did to make her, but the end result was slightly better than what I was expecting (if I may say so myself).

She was nothing but problems.. Let's start with the beginning problem which was her complicated hairstyle.

Chapter 1: HAIR / HEAD

https://i.ibb.co/v3fWKTT/tumblr-pc3mep-Tbj71s8lfn3o1-400.jpg
I used ITEM #633912 for the front hair and partially the back, and for the full back I used ITEM #166890.

Here are some pictures of the process, which was first to chop off what I needed from each Nendoroid, and grind it so that everything fits (If you ever do heavy grinding on nendoroids, always wear a mask, a 3M or chinese knockoff, but at least something). And I used a glue gun to get everything holding together and also to fill in the gaps and create a natural effect. I will let the pictures tell the story:

https://i.ibb.co/DMvvvHP/20200524-184248.jpghttps://i.ibb.co/rm1spW8/20200527-173410.jpg

Then, I added some extra pieces I made from scratch out of almond nuts... just kidding, it's plastic but it does look a bit nutty ay? xD

https://i.ibb.co/zXcGjgP/20200527-173412.jpg

Btw.. we getting to the paint part where I use lacquer.. I am completely new to airbrushing, and someone on mfc that I will name at the end guided me, my airbrushing sensei.

After priming with Surfacer 1000, I quickly realised that my my glue gun job wasn't very clean at all even after all the the grinding and sand papering:

https://i.ibb.co/mhLFt2z/20200616-230912.jpg

So I had to redo those parts and and re prime it as well. So dipping in thinner to clear off the current prime, and redo:

https://i.ibb.co/TtDj8xG/20200616-230919.jpg

Wasn't perfect, but I told myself the actual main paint will fix that (and boy oh boy, was I wrong, but you get the idea.. in the end I got there).

Chapter 2: Body and clothes


https://i.ibb.co/9VMd6XM/Bo-FIII-Nina-PSP-Artwork.png


For the body skeleton I used: ITEM #946258

Down to the clothing now, I was completely new to sewing as well, I will let the pictures again tell the hand sewing story:

STOPPPPPPP !!!!! YES, I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING:

Now for the shoes!


I didn't take any pictures of the step by step fabrication of the clothing unfortunately. I was frustrated on all the trial and error that I couldn't be asked to capture it..


https://i.ibb.co/r54pfyV/20200526-142036.jpghttps://i.ibb.co/C0JM5L1/20200526-164148.jpghttps://i.ibb.co/JKmcLqj/20200526-170417.jpghttps://i.ibb.co/JyL7CCm/20200526-170425.jpg


Chapter 3: Wings


https://i.ibb.co/4jnx9c6/e2q7slj23oj31.png

For these, I actually had some spare parts from broken figures and nendoroids! So this part was straight forward, or at least I thought so.. After cutting them out, I grinded them to the right shape and made them fit with the other wings to have an 'adjustable mechanism':

https://i.ibb.co/jDKWqR4/20200614-162824.jpghttps://i.ibb.co/mb5VJm6/20200614-163502.jpghttps://i.ibb.co/qxsRL85/20200614-163138.jpghttps://i.ibb.co/TBkWXzs/20200614-170934.jpghttps://i.ibb.co/7WT3y1L/20200614-173014.jpghttps://i.ibb.co/x1DmzmV/20200614-174449.jpg


Final Chapter: Airbrushing and final pieces


https://i.ibb.co/wwn4sq4/90xmpvxi4d331.png

Now, I had to prime all the bits and get them ready for painting and assembling! I will let the pictures tell the story here again:

https://i.ibb.co/tCL2JcX/20200616-225241.jpghttps://i.ibb.co/TtDj8xG/20200616-230919.jpg

And.. here she is

A Wild Chav BoF Fanboy ReREEappears: BUT STOTOC BREAD MATE, What ABOOT HER METAL GOLD BRACELETSS BRUVV?
Static the dragon whistler: https://i.ibb.co/XVFDGKg/finally.gif

Static has you covered, I made and painted these mini bracelets by hand:

https://i.ibb.co/xFhZ1Tv/Adobe-20200707-161651.jpg

I airbrushed the hair with a matte finish, and for the Red Alice Band I did a Gloss finish to give off a 'shiny' affect.

A Wild Chav BoF Fanboy RerereegehhjrkhjrtjbkReREEappears: You mean Gloss innit tho?
Static the dragon whistler: https://i.ibb.co/HdjRbqX/bb6b8e07c31e7ab9f481240e97704020.gif

So there we have it, my own little Nina Nendoroid Doll! For the face I used ITEM #57142 , so yes, she has spare faces and expressions too!! But I love her basic one so much..

I want to thank someone who has become a friend of mine. And even though I cannot write to him as often as I wish I could, he hasn't gave up on me! He has been so supportive during my journey in Airbrush painting and took countless of hours out of his own time to help me feel comfortable in the process. He has also introduced me into Model kits that I cannot wait to get started! And this humans name is Loli-Knight of The Holy Loli Empire, XARDEJ !! Thank you!!!

Haha no worries! I’m super behind myself with regards to replying to messages. So no rush lollll.

I’m pretty good! Just swamped prepping for prelims rn. Maybe after they’re completed I’ll have time to do a fun project like this :DDD Fingers crossed >.< In the mean time I’ll enjoy reading other people’s adventures. It’s been so much fun seeing everyone’s customs!!

As always, take care and be safe! And thanks for sharing your journey with Nina :)
